Impressive Over Two Feet Tall Murano Art Glass Hot Pink Shark on a Wave Figurine

About the Item

Very impressive, hand made and mouth blown in Italy, Murano art glass figure or sculpture of a shark in a very vibrant hot pink color, with clear and pink fins, set on a free flowing clear glass wave plinth. This is a very large and stately art glass sea life sculpture measuring over two feet in height and is sure to impress. The quality of the Murano glass is the finest and it moves fluidly with light, making the sculpture almost seem like it is alive. The silhouette of the shark is long, bold and striking and Murano sculptures with color are twice as expensive and more sought after than the all clear ones. In excellent pre-owned estate condition. Century old Murano glass from Italy is world renowned for its' appearance, elegance and beauty. Each piece of Murano glass, brings with itself the history and enchanting beauty of Italy. Glassmaking has been in existence since the 10th century in Venice and has been operating continuously ever since. Glass was one of the Renaissance’s most wished for treasures and at one point in history, was an extremely luxurious and valuable commodity available only to the most wealthy. Glassmakers were considered “royalty” and enjoyed several privileges. They could wear swords and enjoyed immunity from prosecution. The daughters of glassmakers were allowed to marry into Venice’s blue-blooded families. Italian glass products were highly priced in the Middle Ages and were predominantly responsible for the power and wealth of the Venetian people. The glassmakers of Murano are truly "The Masters". They blow exceptionally fine forms and objects, using only a few tools. To refine the form of Murano glass, the glassblower sits in the special “glassmaker’s chair,” with extended arms, to support the blowpipe.
